Silver Sky Jewelry & Gifts: What is Aromatherapy?


By Cara Turner, Owner of Silver Sky:  Aromatherapy is a form of alternative medicine that uses steam derived oils to help a variety of ailments dating back as far as the 1st century. Aromatherapy can be used to enhance moods, relieve depression, anxiety and pain. Our sense of smell has an extraordinary effect on our mood. Just think of the scent of the Thanksgiving dinner cooking in the kitchen. It makes you feel comfortable and safe. The same goes for aroma lamps and the ability of different scents to make us feel better.

For instance, using orange in an aroma lamp can help overcome depressive thoughts and uplift your mood. Lemongrass gives a cheerful energy and can enhance concentration, stimulate creativity and renew energy. Finally, rosemary is said to boost confidence, enhance memory and concentration. When you come into the store those are the wonderful scents that fill the room! You could also use the Rosemary and Lemongrass in the study area for your kids or your work area to help with concentration. Another great idea for aromatherapy that anyone could try is to use two drops of peppermint and two drops of lavender in a bowl of warm water for a great relaxing foot soak.

Need to give your loved one’s more than an idea about what you want? I had a brilliant suggestion from a new friend to put in a wish box at the store! If you are out browsing at the store and would love to get something here as a gift,  you write your name and the products that you want on the card and then send your husband, boyfriend, kids, friends etc. to the store. It’s a win-win for everyone involved!

Great for birthdays and anniversaries!
